The red-carpet finale for Davis Idol begins at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Brunelle Performance Hall at Davis High School, 315 W. 14th St.
The original 24 contestants were narrowed down to 12 finalists who will vie for the coveted title of Davis Idol. Finalists are Rebecca Buer, Mandy Chen, Ilana Creinin, Scott Yamamoto, Lucy Brazil, Elisa McIsaac, Nikki Ivester, Camila Ortiz, Jose Arzaluz, Jenna Farboud, Sibel Alpdemir and Andrew Block.
The final dozen will be judged by Davis schools Superintendent Winfred Roberson, DHS teacher Chris Lee and musician Trena Thompson. Special musical performances will be provided by local band Red Union Blue, which features Roberson, Lee and Thompson; DHS’ Advanced Treble Choir; and DHS alumni duo Erik Maroney and Brad Soler, a previous Idol winner.
Tickets are $10 in advance, available at Watermelon Music, 207 E St. in downtown Davis. Tickets at the door, if available, will be $12.
Proceeds from Davis Idol, sponsored by Davis High’s Advanced Treble Choir, will help support the choir’s upcoming trip to Boston, Montreal and Quebec, where members will participate in musical education master classes and performances.
ATC will represent Davis by singing at the JFK Presidential Library in Boston and several basilicas in Canada. For more information, visit www.dhstreblechoir.org.
